Coastal Cigarette Litter Prevention Campaign Installs Cigarette Receptacles
Promoting cigarette litter prevention, the GEORIGA'S COAST IS NOT AN ASHTRAY coast-wide educational initiative is installing cigarette receptacles in public spaces near water bodies throughout Georgia's coastal region.
Keep Liberty Beautiful, Keep Savannah Beautiful, Keep McIntosh Beautiful, Keep Camden Beautiful,Tybee Clean BeachVolunteers, the City of Tybee Island, Ft. McCallaster State Park, Crooked River State Park, University of Georgia Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant, Ogeechee Riverkeeper and Keep Golden Isles Beautiful are utilizing a $10,000 Keep America Beautiful cigarette litter prevention program grant to place the receptacles, and launch a targeted coastal educational outreach initiative.
Made of cellulose acetate, a type of plastic, cigarette butts are the nation's number one most littered item and do not easily biodegrade. When wet, cigarette butts become toxic litter, leaching toxins and posing potential dangers to coastal ecosystems and their native inhabitants. As part of the two-year coast-wide program, 142 cigarette waste receptacles will be placed in coastal Georgia public spaces near water bodies.
Project Website Unveiled
The GEORGIA'S COAST IS NOT AN ASHTRAY regional cigarette litter prevention outreach effort has a project specific new website. The new site is independent of the participating organizations and will be the clearinghouse for all project information.
